Episode 1: Meg Lewellyn
Meg was an active 37 year old with three young kids when she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Ten years have passed, her kids are no longer little and she continues to find the reasons to laugh and smile at all this disease doles out. She believes that her kids are better people for seeing her embrace all that comes with the disease with a positive attitude. In her blog (bbhwithms.com) she talks about the good, the bad and the downright funny shit that happens when living with a chronic illness. She has begun to use cannabis to help with the chronic pain and is now also sharing her “MMJ Adventures” with her readers.

Episode 3: Michael T
Michael describes himself as:
Soon to be 49. Diagnosed in 2009 with primary progressive MS, so over time I’ve swapped my little sports car for a sporty wheelchair! Frequent visitor to my local minor injuries unit and this is usually for stitches after impressive falls!
Self confessed geek who loves a new gadget, IT manager and husband to @wheelchichome who after I was diagnosed three months after we were married, turned her design skills to creating a fabulous yet accessible home.
Rattles when shaken due to the various number of tablets taken throughout the day and I’m also a Fampyra responder! Did I mention I’m a purveyor of all things Gin? Lurks somewhere in West Sussex.
Episode 4: Robin Howard
Trishna is a multi-award winning patient advocate for chronic illness, hidden disability and specifically multiple sclerosis. She was diagnosed with MS in 2008 and despite having a full time job as a translator for a business information firm, she uses her spare time to work with with various stakeholders (including pharma, clinicians, other patients and the third sector) to improve support, services and patient engagement in the healthcare arena. She’s also a Patron/Ambassador for MS Society UK, Sue Ryder, ParaDance UK and the Cambridge MS Therapy Centre, and is a Committee Member of national support group Asian MS. In 2015, she put MS on the national map when she was chosen as one of just six people out of over 11,000 nominations to feature in a special four-part edition of Strictly Come Dancing on BBC1. She was chosen specifically because of her advocacy work and her approach to the MS diagnosis. Awards include: Eyeforpharma Patient Advocate Award Europe 2018, We Are the City Top 100 Rising Stars (Charity category), Woman of Achievement 2015 (Women of the Year Foundation), Sue Ryder Southern Women of Achievement Award 2015 (Volunteering Category) and MS Society Volunteer of the Year 2013.
